Welcome to the audition website for the BFA programs in Acting, Musical Theatre, Dance and Design/Technology. We’re so pleased you’re interested in joining our more than 40 year tradition of success and excellence. We look forward to getting to know you through this process.

To begin, please be sure to read the audition requirements for the programs you’re interested in on our website: ActingMusical TheatreDanceDesign/Technology. You may audition for more than one of these programs online through GetAcceptd. However, you will only be accepted into one program. Once you have selected your program, you will then be directed to a page where you can create a profile and upload your headshot, resume, video clips, design portfolio or other pertinent information. To prepare for your audition, follow the guidelines listed on the degree program of your choice by following the drop-down menu on the left of this page.  

The School of Music has a separate page on GetAcceptd – be sure you’re on the right page!

Before you can be scheduled on AuditionRoom or before your Dance Program submission can be processed, you must complete the Department BFA application form and pay the application fee. To be accepted into the program you must also apply and be accepted for admission to Wright State University

This year due to social distancing guidelines in relation to Covid-19, Wright State University’s Department of Theatre, Dance and Motion Pictures will be conducting its live Auditions through AuditionRoom on getacceptd.com

Acting and Musical Theatre Auditions 
You must audition live via AuditionRoom to be considered for placement in these programs. Musical Theatre applicants must also submit a dance video as part of their audition. This must be uploaded to their submission page on the Acceptd platform. You will find detailed information on the Dance Audition on the Musical Theatre  Program page. If you upload additional pre-recorded video it will be used as a pre-screen and will not count as an audition. Acting and Musical Theatre candidates audition at the same time. If you are submitting for both emphasis' you will audition for both simultaneously, which will require only one application. 

Wright State's Dance Program Auditions 
These will be conducted only through video submissions on 
getacceptd.comYou will find detailed information on how to prepare for your audition on the Dance Program page in the drop down menu to the left.
